The competition-winning project for the Lightbox is a new kind of community cultural centre for Woking. It originated from the community and is a flexible and adaptable, a meeting place, a cultural bridge between different groups, an opportunity to present art which goes beyond the walls of the gallery and connects back to the community. The Lightbox opened to the public in September 2007. Since opening it has received a Civic Trust Award and has been shortlisted for the Art Fund Prize.
Sandwiched between the Basingstoke Canal and a six lane highway adjacent to the Town Centre, building will be clad in shades of gold and silver facing the roads; and timber on the more Arcadian canal and garden sides.
